This week, from New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall in Boston, we feature outstanding musicians from 11 to 18, including a teenage horn trio from Chicago playing Brahms and a very young cellist from here in Boston playing Saint-Saens. Also, 13-year-old Roving Reporter Caeli Smith will join us to interview two sisters about their very special bond. She’ll also pick up her violin and play a little Gershwin with Chris.
